The A.O. Fox Nursing Home has issued a temporary visitor restriction due to increased flu activity. For the health and safety of residents, healthcare staff and visitors, non-essential visitation to the nursing home is not recommended at this time.

During the temporary restriction, families and friends are encouraged to send a card or telephone the patient rather than come to the nursing home to visit.
The A.O. Fox Nursing Home will advise the public when the restriction is no longer in effect.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older.
